In the first week of January 2019, the school conducted Secondary 1 Orientation Activities pRogramme (SOAR) which comprised talks, sharing, distinctive programmes activities, culminating in 3-day non-residential camp and a campfire.
The “We Are One” slogan for the camp segment remains and it highlights the emphasis on the Woodgrove family culture as the school welcomes the Secondary 1 students to the family.
During the Applied Learning Programme (ALP) sessions, students explored on how to create shapes using polymer materials and re-moulding them into egg holder.
During the Learning for Life Programme (LLP) segment, students were given their first exposure to Values in Action (VIA) projects as they packed Chinese New Year goodie bags for the elderly. The Sec 1 students also attended the Sec 1 Transition talk with our school counsellors.
2 January (Tue) was the day when the camp segment started, adopting the theme “Benders”. Likewise, there are many Secondary 1 students but they are bonded together by the invisible pulling force of friendship and Woodgrove identity.
In the camp segments, students from each class created painted handprints to decorate a portion of the “We Are One” banner, which was then combined together for showcase at the campfire.
